I'm failing spectacularly at making something everyday, but I'm still trying. I do think about making everyday, and I know I should be making, which gives me hope that I'll keep striving for a lifestyle that will allow that. I'm just still in the beginning stages, piecing everything together. And from most everyone I've talked to, what I'm going through seems to be par for the course.
However, I'm participating in the trunk show at the SNAG conference in Phoenix this year, and I'm beginning to panic about having enough work! I'm trying to work up some new mica pieces as well as improve upon the older designs. I know late May seems very far away from early March, but when you only get one or two solid days in which to work in the studio on top of teaching and working, and coordinating an exhibition. . . well. . . I've just been feeling very overwhelmed lately. But, I'm pretty pleased with where these earrings are heading.
I've also been doing some enameling, which is good for my soul. These will be slate black cloisonne brooches for the trunk show.
Back to work! Thanks for reading!
